Reception[edit]

Jason Crock of Pitchfork Media gave the album a 6.6 out of 10, saying, "Downtown Science could have been a sleek limousine ride through Blockhead's version of New York, but we'll have to settle for an appropriately funky cab ride."[4]

Chris Ingold of MusicOMH gave the album a favorable review and said, "this is an album to stick on your iPod as you walk through Manhattan at night, even if it’s a pretend Manhattan in your home town miles away."[3]
